As a global collective of industry-leading companies across manufacturing and distribution with more than 40 years of experience in their field, the group employs thousands of colleagues worldwide, with 50 colleagues in EMEA, between UK and UAE. The organisation first grew its UK operation through the acquisition of a UK business and needed to establish dedicated HR support to take care of the UK team better.
The group needed to be comfortable with the fundamentals of HR coming to the UK – including payroll, personnel administration, new hire support and onboarding, ad hoc colleague relations, legal support and HR technology. It was also important for them to create a bridge between their existing people processes and programmes – the UK couldn’t be an island!
Vero HR’s core UK expertise worked in step with the organisation’s global approach. The Vero HR team is closely engaged with the client’s team, facilitating their existing people processes across colleague engagement, talent management, and performance reviews on the ground in the UK and the UAE. The business understands that consistency and accuracy in colleague payroll and administration is essential to the support and delivery process, and utilise Vero HR’s capabilities to achieve this.
Previously, the group was missing a global connected approach, and is now building its global people proposition as an organisation with the Vero HR team being a great enabler in helping to tighten that up.
The client has had a lot of change in the last few years, including some challenges during the pandemic which impacted its industry hard. Vero HR has proactively helped them be on top of this, and they now have their people in the right place to realise opportunities post-pandemic.
